Stockings are hung by the chimney in hopes of their being filled with nuts, fruits and candy. They are also hung on the Rockingham County Literacy Project’s Stockings of Literacy tree in hopes of their helping someone to read, write, do basic math, gain job skills, receive a GED certificate or learn English.
By sponsoring a Christmas tree stocking, you can honor or memorialize special friends or family members. The stockings are hung on the Christmas tree located in the window of the RCLP office, 705-A Washington Street, Eden.
“Your donations of $6 per stocking allow the Literacy Project to purchase books, software and other materials, which are greatly needed,” says Jean Light Kinyon, Executive Director. “Volunteer tutors use these materials to work with local adults and help them reach their educational goals.”
The person honored, or a family member of the person memorialized, will receive a card notifying them that a gift has been donated in his/her name. Each gift is represented by a small red and white stocking with the honored or memorialized person’s name printed on the top.
